, president obama's talking about the law's benefits. highlighting one woman's story. >> she was one of the 3.1 million young people that this law helped cover because they could join their parents' plan. and that means that when she was diagnosed with a potentially deadly autoimmune disorder she got the care she needed. in the letter she wrote, i'm grateful because the affordable care act saved my life, saved my family from bankruptcy and gave me a future. >> this law is saving lives. how does the republican national committee counter that? quote, the white house is trying to woo young people, really? it's offensive that the democrats think that they can make things right with a social and some warm up talking points. i'll tell you what's offensive, when the republicans call the website president obama's katrina or that when obama care is terrorizing the country, or when a group backed by billionaires used a creepy uncle sam to try to scare young people not to get insurance. that was offensive, but helping millions of americans get insurance is working, and they can't handle it. joining me n

of the united states yesterday, a tempered and reflective barack obama talked to me about what it's like for him to be president and how it's changed him. howard fineman is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, so he's got three years left in a second term he's not sure what he's going to do with. and i think sometimes he wond

for the politics lead. first rule about re-branding obama care, you do not talk about obama care. today the white house launched a three-week blitz on the public's perception of the affordable care act. because, according to press secretary jay carney, obama care does not exist anymore. here's what he told cnn's jim acosta. >> jim, i, first of all, there's not an insurance policy called obama care. i think it's important to your viewers that they understand they're purchasing private insurance. >> still, the president didn't shy away from the term today when he was defending the law. >> that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is, let's just go back to the status quo because they sure haven't presented an alternative. >> so what's in a name? let's bring in our panel, editor of the "weekly standard," bill kristol, former arkansas senator and chairwoman of the it's my business coalition, blanche linco lincoln, and washington bureau che chief for "usa today" susan page. former president bill clinton is slapping down reports a few weeks ago he was trying to give hillary cl
